14:5 and he turneth aside out of all cities of Judah the high places and the images, and the kingdom is quiet before him.
14:7 And he saith to Judah, 'Let us build these cities, and compass [them] with wall, and towers, two-leaved doors, and bars, while the land [is] before us, because we have sought Jehovah our God, we have sought, and He giveth rest to us round about;' and they build and prosper.
